Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but in this case your lymphatic drainage system is! Caring for your body from within, is truly reflected from the outside. Following on from the winter and lockdown months, we’ve experienced now more than ever, our bodies feeling sluggish and potentially uncomfortable and prone to infections from the lack of interaction with the outside world recently.
The Lymphatic Drainage System
The lymphatic drainage system helps the body to get rid of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials within the body such as infections. The system is built up of small tubes called Lymph vessels and Lymph nodes, that run throughout the body.
The lymphatic system carries a liquid called Lymph around the body as the blood circulates. Fluid passes from the blood into the body’s tissues carrying food to the cells, the lymph fluid bathes the tissues to form tissue fluid which collects waste products, damaged cells and bacteria if there are any, in the body. The fluid then drains back into the lymph vessels to be transported to the Lymph glands to take out any harmful products and also contains lots of white blood cells which helps to fight infections.
The lymph eventually reaches a large vessel in the neck called the Thoracic duct which passes the filtered lymph back into the blood circulation. If the nodes or vessels are blocked or damaged it can cause a buildup of fluid which can cause swelling and can make you feel uncomfortable.
Treatment With Body Ballancer
The lymphatic drainage system depends on muscle contraction and deep breathing to remove any unwanted fluid that may be causing swelling and any toxins in our body. Body Ballancer is a lymphatic drainage massage system that helps the system run smoothly, by targeting the delicate lymphatic vessels and nodes that sit below the skin, adding light pressure in order to move fluid throughout.
Who Is Treatment Suitable For?
Your lymphatic system supports your immune system by removing toxins, getting rid of excess fluid and helping your body to absorb vitamins from your digestive system. A massage with Body Ballancer can produce a wide range of health, aesthetic and fitness benefits like reducing cellulite, supporting weight loss, reducing swelling, improving digestion and boosting your immune system.
